Microsoft and XenSource: Is there real hope for virtualization interoperability?

Read here the article:


"Novell released its new operating system with Xen but limited support to its own operating system for virtual machines"

Does this mean that XP is not able to run in a Virtual Machine? I just can't believe that.

Anyone who can confirm?

I suspect what they mean by that is they won't provide customer support to anyone running anything else. IE if you pay for SLES and run SLES under the Xen/SLES kernel they'll help, but if you run something other than SLES you're on your own. However, this is just my interpretation as the wording is vague.
